Education Advice

I've lived on the water all my life, and owned several boats, so I know the basics pretty well. However, I hope and plan to live on a 50 - 55 foot trawler in a few years, which leaves me plenty of time to advance my knowledge - things like Coast Guard regulations, navigating shipping lanes, use of a radio and other electronics, etc.

Can anyone recommend a good course, perhaps online or on CD? Are there good Coast Guard courses?

Finally, can/should/ought I get something like a Captain's license or the like? Any help is wonderfully appreciated.

Bill
